With the April 1 start of the Major League Baseball season just around the corner, Comcast March 23 announced that its Xfinity broadband subscribers with a Flex device can now access MLB games on the league’s proprietary MLB.tv subscription streaming app. A separate subscription is required to access every out-of-market game. In 2020, MLB.tv cost $121.99 for a season of coverage.
Comcast’s 3 million Flex subs also have access to MLB.tv’s expanded library of programming with a full range of features, documentaries and classic games from MLB and MLB Network.
Existing MLB.tv subs can say “MLB app” into their Xfinity voice remote to launch the app and log-in to their subscription. New customers can subscribe to any one of MLB.tv’s three packages on www.mlb.com/flex.
Xfinity Flex is a 4K streaming device included with Xfinity high-speed Internet service that extends the features of the X1 set-top box for streamers, giving them an integrated guide and voice remote to access their entertainment, including a growing collection of live sporting events.
